Gurley responds to the appeal from Berry that his wife recently received. While Gurley supports the work of the school, he is shocked that Berry would seek funds from them in light of the "shameful" and "misguided" treatment his brother received while Chaplain at Berry. Gurley reports that his brother's friends have rallied around him and he will suffer no loss, and closes by expressing his surprise that "a woman of your standing and achievement could permit the perpetration of such an action, or series of actions, as those of which he has been quite the innocent victim."
